Ambient Collage of Field Recordings
26+ minute collage of beatless ambience beautifully interplaying both processed and unprocessed field recordings featuring varying degrees of aural textures - lengthy segments of minimal ambient warmth, spacious tranquil drones, with occasional interludes of ambient noise.

I half-listened to this piece last night, and on the second listen, I really got into this ambient sound. I was half-asleep, barely listening to this piece, and to be honest, experienced many blissful moments.
It's amazing how such carefully controlled sounds can affect a person. Suddenly after the piece ended I found myself hyperaware of every single sound around me. Even though the textures are supposed to be aleatoric and naturalistic, in fact ,you are hearing manufactured sounds, not quite natural, but still quite peaceful. Compare to Pablo Sanz Almoguera (HyO) archive.org piece hyO - aproximacion #004.
